Happy Birthday

No more pain, eternally at ease
I feel you in the gentle breeze
In cloudy skies
Raindrops fill my eyes

The moon and stars glow at night
The stars blink and twinkle bright
Like the ocean splashing waves ashore
The love we share lives on forever more

I see you in every sunrise and sunset
Your smile as warm as the sun, I'll never forget
Remember Mom's home made chocolate frosting cake
Not just one piece you could ever take

From us, your sisters you would borrow
You would say, "Mom can I have my piece of cake for tomorrow?"
We didn't mind because you were our dear brother
Our one and only brother like no other

Happy Birthday in heaven my dear brother
May you rest in peace forever
We will never part
You live on in my heart
